Homeward Trails would like to share a very special thank you note to Virginia Paving Company.  They have posted a Homeward Trails sign on their vacuum truck so keep an eye out for it in your local neighborhood.    In addition, we really appreciate all that Linda Bolton and her office mates do to help socialize the dogs with multitudes of different people.  In the last year, they have had dozens of Homeward Trails dogs in there being regularly visited and handled by the office staff and road crews.   This helps socialize the dogs to better adapt to new situations!

Homeward Trails attended the second annual “Paws For Celebration” event, co-hosted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus. The event is designed to honor shelters and rescue organizations throughout the nation and raise awareness for pet adoption.  Take a look at some of the action on Capitol Hill!
